Would the same principle work with people who have taken Struts
and integrated or embedded as another framework? Having spent
some type integrating 1.1 into Expresso Framework in 2002, in
our case can we be classified as Struts extenders? Also some
repository will not want to become a sub project of Struts
because of logical sense, politics or legal entity status?
